Official press release:
Singer/songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle has posted a never-before-heard song “Forever, as the Setting Son” for sale on Bandcamp for $1.00 or donation amount of your choice. 100% of the proceeds from the song’s sale will be donated to Planned Parenthood Federal and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, which exists to ensure that elected officials support policies and programs that help women and their families make responsible choices about family planning and reproductive health.
Emma Ruth Rundle commented:
“’Forever, as the Setting Son’ was written and recorded in a humble lo-fi setting in Los Angeles some years ago. Yes it’s ‘Son’ and yes it’s noisy and emotional, all reasons why I couldn’t bring myself to ever re-track this song. I find myself filled with grief these days, similar to that expressed in the song, over many of the issues we as humans, as tenants of the Earth, will face in the coming era. While I am unable to join the marches set to take place all over the U.S. on Saturday, I would like to offer this song and will be donating all the proceeds to Planned Parenthood. I have been grateful for them in my life, as a young woman, and hope that we can come together to preserve the future of such an important institution in this divisive time so that they may continue to provide care for people of all races, religions, sexes, countries of origin, all genders. Be excellent to each other.”
